JT - Fishing

I was thinking about this project and wanted to use the JT fish for my hubby's fishing picture.  I saw a challenge at My Pink Stamper and decided to make this page for the challenge. The winner can be on their design team-sounds like a blast!  We are supposed to:
Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge using the following colors......
(other optional color of your choice)
My optional color is blue.
I made this layout using the JT cartridge for the imagine and the text is made with Gypsy Font, colored with a pattern from the JT cart.  
The fish are almost 4 inches, I split them and copied them and fit to page to make 2 complete layered fish on an 8.5 X 11 sheet of white paper.  I sprayed them with Bliss Mist to give them a nice shiny glow.  Aren't those fish funny?
I made the "waves" out of the border in the JT cart.  I printed two at one inch, and two more turquoise on the cut only setting.

I never would have thought to use orange and brown on my layout except for the challenge, but I think those colors really set off my pictures, so if I don't win the challenge, I'm a winner already!  Have a great day!

JT - Fly

I made a Fly card from the JT cartridge, because I really like the bird!  And I even got some ribbon on it!!!
Have a nice day

JT - Dragon

I didn't think I was real thrilled with the dragon in the JT cartridge, but I had made this background paper, mixing light brown and light pink distress inks.  Then I sprayed the whole thing with whipped honey butter Bliss Mist, giving the whole thing a gold shimmer and sparkles.  It works wonderfully with the dragon!  I added some Stickles along some of the edges of the dragon.

And alas, I couldn't work the ribbon in :(  Thanks for looking!

Stretch Your Imagination - Wedding Card

As promised here is the other card I made, but didn't use.  I really liked the way it turned out, but not as much as the one I used.

It doesn't show, but the whole card is shiny and sparkley, I used little rhinestones for the buttons on the dress, and of course I got my ribbon and a flower in there :) .

Stretch Your Imagination - Wedding Card

My brother-in-law is getting married this weekend, so I made his wedding card using Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and the Imagine machine.  I used the stretched wedding card and the stretched couple for the envelope.  I had a cream 5 X 7 envelope, so I made the card 7" tall, it's not 5" wide, but it seemed best to fit to the tall length and not the width length.  I used the imagine machine to print the frame, I think it's the imagine more cartridge.  The love was from the Cricut Sampler cartridge.  I added ribbon, flowers, and put little pearls down the front of the bride for buttons.

I made another wedding card using the little bride and groom, but will have to post it after the wedding, I just wanted to post this before I write on it :).  Have a great day!

Imagine More - Mem-moo-ries

I made a happy little cow card using Imagine More cartridge, it says Mem-moo-ries (I'm not too sure if that's clear in the picture)  It's pretty simple, but I think it turned out cute.  Our 30th anniversary is coming up in September, I'm thinking we have lots of mem-moo-ries.  Somebody will probably get this card for our anniversary :)
I added wiggley eyes, and pop dots to lift the head a little, and it's red, white and blue for the 4th of July!  Have a good one!

Better Together - You're My Cup of Tea

Here's a quick card I did with Better Together cartridge.  It's just the cup made at about 3 inches and the word art 1.5 inches, I put them on with glue dots, which raises them up a little, but not as much as a pop dot.

Have a great day and a Happy 4th of July, and thanks so much to all our service men who have given up so much for us.  May you truly be blessed!
